Gerbeaud is a famous cafe/bakery in downtown Budapest, right on Vörösmarty Square, in the heart of the Inner City. I decided on a late night dinner here and let myself watch the world go by.
Sitting outside, you can see the activity in the square. The menu I was only after one thing tonight – the famous Chicken Paprikash, or Paprika Chicken.
Tender, with homemade noodles, a nice sauce and sour cream. Perfect. Nothing spectacular, but good.Then I was after dessert, I mean, Gerbeaud is known for dessert! And with that, I need Espresso. Here’s what I am after, the famous Hungarian cake – Somlói Galuska. Regular Sponge Cake, Cocoa Sponge Cake, Walnut Sponge Cake, all put together with Raisins, Nuts, Vanilla Cream and Chocolate Sauce. Yum.
Simple dining, a little over priced because of the location, but good for watching people and getting to know Budapest for the first time.
